Odum Library has been acquiring e-books from a variety of academic publishers for over ten years. The e-books reside in several vendor databases. Since each e-book vendor is different, please visit the specific e-book database guide as listed in the menu for more specific information regarding viewing, printing, copying, and downloading instructions.
E-books and the e-book databases are accessible on & off campus. Off-campus access requires login using your VSU Email username/password or the GALILEO password. If you have difficulty logging-in, please use the "Live Chat" button to request assistance. The database vendor may require the creation of a ‘free’account to download e-books or perform other tasks, i.e. saving to a favorites folders or adding notes.
